New Kidz

Anthony Bennett was born on 17 November 1976 in Downtown Kingston Jamaica. He relocated with his family to Duhaney Park St Andrew when he was 12 and at the age of 14, he began his musical journey. While he was still a student at Clancarthy High School in Vineyard Town, St. Andrew, he started playing on the La Benz sound system, which was owned by Spragga Benz and Ricky Villa. Kidz eventually took the plunge by himself and in 1998 he dropped a homemade compilation of his music in “Keep It Real”. He was taken under the wing of his childhood friend Q45 who had already established himself in the dancehall industry. He was impressed with Bennett’s determination. His first radio single was titled “Help” and it was on the “Dirty Money Riddim” which featured artists like Capleton, Elephant Man and Lexxus.

In 2004 he joined the Buju Banton owned Gargamel  Music Inc Label. He recorded a number of good songs with the label including “Man A Galis”  on the 100 Watt Riddim and “flava” on the  Golden Tree Riddim. He always featured Buju Banton in the track titled “Curfew”. As the flagship artist at TruckBack Studios, Kidz worked on his  debut reggae album titled “Check” with producers Adrian Locke of LockeCity Music Group and Steve Locke of TruckBack Records. Some of hid notable songs include “Nuh Fear”, “Zero The Game”,  “Go Go Dancer” and “Tip Up pon Yu Toe”. Some of his notable collaborations were with Lady Saw and Eve for “Money Green”, with Beenie Man for “Daddaaayyy”, and “Street Pledge” which featuresDing Dong and Baby Chris.
